Homeschooling & Special Needs, Inspired by the Montessori Way

Montessori Monday February 14, 2011

Monkey is 4 years old

This week, it seems like Monkey finally got back into the homeschooling routine.  She’s been a bit reluctant to come down to the schoolroom and work for the past couple weeks…we’re not sure why.  I think it’s just been a bit of a hard transition off the holidays, and then Jedi was home from school a couple days because of bad weather.  But she’s back in the swing of things this week!

Here is a review of some of the things she’s done…

A little Valentine's Day twist to the handwriting work. I have her name card out, some paper, a pencil, and added a little Valentine's Day mailbox

Working on the sandpaper letters and beginning sounds for M,A,S,O,T, and C

Using tongs to move the eggs from the basket to the pan

We're working on number recognition and counting a lot this week as well.

Doing more counting, this time with the bead bars

The bead bars and control card

I found these cool little dusting mits awhile back, and I put them on the practical life shelf for Bug and Monkey to use

  1. I love your activities, as usual! The Valentine’s Day mailbox adds so much to the handwriting work. I featured your post and handwriting activity photo in my Montessori-Inspired Valentine’s Day Activities at http://livingmontessorinow.com/2012/01/30/montessori-monday-montessori-inspired-valentines-day-activities/.
